2008 Elections: The Right Temperament

It's important that whoever sits in the White House have a calm demeanor and not allow themselves to be provoked into lashing out, because there will be plenty of provocation on the job.

Angry McAncient has just shown himself, once again, completely unequal to the task. While the current resident is a buffoon who rambles incoherently through scripted talking points, at least he is either too drunk or too stoned most of the time to understand what's being said. Thus, he is not likely to be provoked. Or maybe he's just too stupid. After all, this is the genius who looked deep into the eyes of ex-KGB operative Vladimir Putin and discovered the man's good soul.

On the other hand, McSenile thinks Putin is the President of Germany. Hmmm. Plus, he's famous for having a lousy temper. In high school, he was known as McNasty. While the NNDB site claims this was because of his willingness to fight, that doesn't ring true to us. All highschoolers like to rumble, or did, back in those days. This guy must have been fighting dirty to be singled out for such a monicker.

He has publicly called his wife a trollop and a cunt. He actually got into a shoving match with one of the few Senators older than himself, Strom Thurmond. He publicly assaulted Rick Renzi until that distinguished greedbag offered to kick his heinie. And he's gotten into it with so many of his colleagues that few of them supported his run for the Presidency. Most of them have publicly expressed trepidation at the thought of him in high office.

Now, he's refusing to return the $300,000 raised for him by that charming fellow who thinks women should just lie back and enjoy a friendly rape or two.

Is there really a woman on the planet who can find it in her to vote for this creep? A man is known by the company he keeps. That's a valid and valuable truism. Is there a man on the planet who loves his mother, wife, lover, daughter, or sister, who can vote for this creep?

An act of violence against the person of another should never be condoned by a Presidential candidate. Nor should a Presidential candidate accept funds from such a misogynistic and bigoted source. Return the money, McCaincient!

mini meta request? would you consider enabling permalinks at your blog?

i'd loooooove to send a friend a direct link to a post, especially since you are an incredibly prolific writer.

(not that everyone wouldn't benefit from reading everything here, you understand...)

Oh, Christy, sorry to be so late getting back to you. Been depressed about Tuffy.

Permalink is already enabled, it's just not called permalink. Please click the timestamp under any post to go to the permalink. And thank you, that's quite a compliment.
